American Mathematics Competition--AMC 10/12A

American Mathematics Competition--AMC 10/12A

Annually in February, we participate in the American Mathematics Competitions (A) contest. This contest has grown from a single city-wide competition in New York City in 1950, organized by the local section of The Mathematical Association of America to a sequence of contests. In 2014, over 220,000 students from over 4,200 U.S. and international schools competed for school, regional, and national awards in this contest and found it fun and rewarding. Top 10, well-known U.S. universities and colleges, including internationally recognized U.S. technical institutions, ask for AMC scores on their application forms. Each year the AMC 10 and AMC 12 are on the National Association of Secondary School Principals Advisory List of Contests and Activities. The AMC Contests are sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America. With these contests, there are awards in each school for the student with the highest score, certificates for high scoring students in each school, state-wide awards, regional awards, and even national awards. These contests lead to other more selective math contests, even all the way to the USA team sent to the International Mathematical Olympiad, the premier international high school level problem solving contest. The problems on the contest are hard, but designed to be within reach.   For more information please visit the Mathematical Association of America website.
